The public is invited to have their say on the proposed Civic Space and Park Guidelines and Streetscape Guidelines that will support The Mill at Moreton Bay Priority Development Area (PDA) Scheme.

The Civic Space and Park Guidelines and Streetscape Guidelines will be used in the assessment of street, laneway, civic space, public plaza, and park proposals in The Mill Central and Mill Green precincts.

Civic Space and Park Guidelines

The  Civic Space and Park Guidelines will assist in the delivery of The Mill at Moreton Bay PDA scheme and direct the desired character and experiential qualities of the civic spaces and parks.

The guidelines will focus on the following Civic Space and Park types:

  • Key Civic Spaces – These are public spaces for socialisation, recreation, activities, and entertainment.
  • Public Plaza – This refers to the civic spaces that are open to the public located within development lots which provide socialisation and breakout spaces. They will also facilitate pedestrian movement, particularly to major building entries. 
  • Local Park – These are compact public spaces that provide socialisation and recreation opportunities.
  • Recreation Park – Refers to the public spaces that provide socialisation, recreation, activities, and entertainment, as well as a connection to nature.
  • Sports Park – These are public spaces that provide active recreation, with a focus on formal competitive sport activities.
